Any bus nuts live and have a bus on the Big Island or other islands?
Thank you, M&C ;D

Michael,

So nice to hear from you two. Hawaii Doesn't sound like Southern Utah or Branson. What gives?

Hey Mike, we have friends on the Big Island and the many times I have been there I have never seen a converted bus. Just wondering.
How have you been and hows the bus doing?

Michael, no places to use a bus or motorhome on any of the islands so you won't see any there.  I have seen one or two of the little Toyota truck motorhomes there though.

Ed- you may be right on this one. I have heard people shipping RVs over to live in as they build their home but never a bus.

Matt- HELLO MATT!!! the 4107 GM, We are 2nd in line, the 1st in line is going to look her over this week and then we should know something. Christi and I talked about BOTN's Frenchy Bus, if it where closer we might have went for it. We just love that bus. Arthur, the 4107 owner also said that there is and older Prevost in TX that we could check if the GM doesn't work our way. We sure miss our Bus friends

Thanks for asking Michael, everything and everyone here is doing just fine. My 06 has had a lot done since you  last saw it. Replaced engine, replaced trans, replaced inverter, rewired the A/C and D/C systems. Other than that just cruising.

Where is home these days?

Michael, we lived on Maui for 11 years and i was told that they would not allow RVs to be shipped over. They also would not allow trailers/mobile homes either unless it was a job shack for a construction company. They did not want the islands to be junked up.  With that said, a few years ago i remember reading about somebody from Oahu that owned either a bus or class A, but they kept it in storage on the mainland and flew over every year to use it.
